Community Writing Center
Does change in democracy require civic dialogue? If so, where is it and who gets to talk? OR write? Join the CWC, libraries, and guests to learn techniques of writing for change, such as letters to editors and public officials. Come with a concern and stay to write a letter with the help of CWC writing coaches.
The SLCC Community Writing Center (CWC) supports, motivates and educates people of all abilities and educational backgrounds who want to use writing for practical needs, civic engagement and personal expression.In addition to an open space available for writing, we provide opportunities to enhance writing abilities through such programs as Writing Coaching , Writing Workshops, the DiverseCity Writing Series, Salt Lake Teens Write, and Community Writing Partners.
